Wine Description

Shows a saturated dark violet color; the nose offers cassis, mocha and clove, along with a strong suggestion of soil tones. It combines density and sweetness on the one hand, with gripping flavors of tobacco, dark berries, spices and minerals; a palate-staining finish dominated by sweet black and blue fruits.

"Alamos Malbec shows the unique potential of this most Argentine of grapes. With a deep, dark violet color, the wine has a concentrated nose of black stone fruits with a touch of toast from light oak aging. The palate is full and round with black raspberry and currant flavors mixed with notes of vanilla and coffee. The finish is long and lingering with soft, sweet tannins." -Beverage Media

    Because of the price point and quality of this wine taken together, it deserves a 4 out of 5, if not more. A great "go to" everyday wine with rich fullness... that won't break the bank!

    Nice fuller body red. Bold but drinkable. Lots of oak but not overpowering
